can somone please confirm me if its a x8 or x16 ram as i watched the video and got to know it greatly impacts performance

i recently purchased a 8gb ddr4 ram for laptopi just wanted to make sure it its X8 or X16 as i came to know x8 are better

here is the serial code CT8G4SFRA32A

 

also i checked the ram physically it had 4 chips in front and nothing on back

That is clearly single rank. I am not sure what you mean by "x8 ram".

I think they're asking about the chip size? 8Gb vs 16Gb in which case this ram has 16Gb modules which 4x16Gb=8GB

If so chip size on the RAM does not impact performance to any degree as far as I'm aware

i wanted to check if its x8 or x16 as x8 are faster by 20% than x16 as linus said

It's one rank, 4 chips x 16 bit per chip = 64 bit  stick. 

It would be lower performance compared to 8 chips x 8 bit per chip , single or dual rank

 

The advantage of a stick like yours is lower power consumption... in theory you get a few extra minutes on battery on your laptop.

In exchange for abysmal performance, better off undervolting the cpu/gpu instead

 

That is single sided but since its sodimm its 4 chips 16gbit size not 8 chips 8gbit size like on usual desktop ram, i have seen older sodimms with 8 chips on one side with 2 rows of chips 4 chips each but unsure of ddr4 ditched that or its just rare nowadays. Basically its abysmal half rank with 4 chips rather than 8

so i wanted to ask should i return it and get one with 8 chips? or is this fine?, i really don't want to compromise on performance so if you can also tell me the performance drop % approx?

Firstly what are your laptops specs and where do you want performance in?
